Great show! This is definately a must have for all fans and anyone who wants to hear the band. Good sound quality and excellent songs!!!! Great Pink Floyd covers as well.

Definately a must have
This show is a complete celebration of what had been Umphrey's biggest year to date - the whole show is worth listening to. The horns were great, the August opener got things started with a bang, the All in Time is insane, and the Nothing 2002 Fancy was the best possible way to welcome the new year. No collection should be without this show. Looking to introduce someone to Umphrey's? This is the show to do it with.

The best Umphrey's show I've ever seen! Three astonishing funky sets with new covers and old favorites played to their full potential. A must have for any Umphrey's fan.
